Nicki Minaj Covers L’Uomo Vogue; Talks Bey, Blue Ivy, and More


Nicki Minaj is back appearing on the cover of the October 2014 issue of L’Uomo Vogue music edition. On the spread, Nicki looks very dapper sporting a rendition of menswear in black and white. Her interview touched on topics that ranged from her upbringing, her thoughts on someday becoming a mother, a recent panic attack on a plane, and being moved by Beyoncé’s interaction with her daughter Blue Ivy.
On having a family of her own and becoming a mother:
“The time is not yet ripe, but when I decide to get married and become a mother, I would like to take a hiatus and dedicate myself completely to my child,” she then adds, “I don’t want to work my whole life without ever experiencing the joys of a family. Family has always been very important to me, and that is why I want to wait until the right moment before starting my own. Right now I am too busy, but at a certain point the situation will change.”
How seeing her mother get abused by her father shaped her life:
“That experience had a profound influence on my way of being a woman – never let a man cross the line or control me, especially in my career.”
On having a panic attack while returning from Paris after her performance with Beyoncé:
“I was flying in a private jet, tired from the performance and the jetlag, but instead of sleeping, I worried about all the deadlines waiting for me in Los Angeles. I got really scared – I had a sort of panic attack.”
On seeing Beyoncé interact with Blue Ivy:
“Seeing Beyoncé with her daughter and husband was so tender, and it showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time.”
